[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A portrait of my friend Helena, as a part of a photo assignment in a course I took in photography.
It was great taking her portrait cause she really enjoyed being in front of the camera.
Recently this photo was used in a local TV feature in which she was interviewed.

PP: Scan, removal of dust from scan, NeatImage, crop, tonal adjustments.

nice photo, good b-w balance, too lot sharpening at the hair

Great portrait of your friend, lights to the good place, a lot of smooth effect on her skin for me...I like this natural expression.
Very good B&W. F

Very nice portrait. I like the B&W. Well done.

Very nice portrait, so classic! NI was not very careful this time, it left some noise on her beautiful face, with waterbrush you can fic that problem. I think the "too much sharpening" on her hair works here well, the opposite between the blury angel-face and the sharp hair is really an extra. Great image, congrats, Joakim!
